Today we’re off to Bedfordshire to chat with Adrian, proud owner of Ristin Construction.
Let’s hear Adrian’s story about his company and how he’s grown it through Bark.
Tell us a bit about you and your background!
I’ve been in the construction industry for about 9 years. Before Ristin Construction, I started my journey in a labourer position and worked my way up to a site supervisor. It was in this role that I learnt the importance of health and safety, leadership, and teamwork. After years of learning and working hard, I decided to open up my own company and try to work on my own because I have a passion for what I do.
When did you join Bark, and why did you join?
I joined Bark in October 2018. I saw an advertisement for Bark and thought I’d give it a go – it looked like the right platform for what I was looking for.
What has your experience on Bark been like so far?
I’ve had the best experience since joining Bark. It’s really helped me get closer and closer to my goal, from the regular product updates to the staff that answer our calls and offer us insight and guidance.
What do you like most about Bark?
The best thing about Bark has to be how straightforward the whole process is, from making the account to the point where you start getting jobs – you feel supported by the team from the very beginning.
Do you have any tips for success for professionals new to Bark? Or for new business owners in general?
- Visualise your goal, work hard, and never give up.
- Don’t forget to ask for help and guidance from Bark’s Customer Success Team.
- Insist on getting jobs, and work hard.
- Finally, be polite, be friendly, and be yourself. Speak on the phone with a smile on your face (the clients can feel that).
What do you think of the Customer Success team at Bark?
The customer success team is amazing, very hard working, always there when you need them.
How has Bark helped you through the Coronavirus pandemic?
During the pandemic Bark was with me every step of the way, from phone calls to very useful updates, making it even easier to get in contact with the client to secure the job. They also offered information and guidance to take a professional and the clients through every day of the pandemic safely.
Anything else you’d like to include?
Maybe this will inspire you.
Before Ristin Construction I went through a bankruptcy, it was a very tough time, I suffered from depression and Bark helped me fight it and leave it behind. The feeling of being useful and to see that it might just be possible to reach my goal. I cannot stress how much Bark has helped me, I am very grateful. Thank you for not stopping, waking up early, and working hard.
It was an absolute pleasure to chat with someone as motivated and hard-working as Adrian – we could all benefit from adopting some of his work ethic!
